Nintendo Download - 9/28/09: Art Lessons, Auto Racing and Arcade Action Multiply the Downloadable Fu

Not too shabby a list of releases this week for the Nintendo Download. I don't mean it's full of Triple-A titles or anything, but there is probably something for most anyone in here. They've wasted no time in bringing out the next part of Art Academy on DSiWare, but if painting isn't your thing, then there is also the strategy-based Dragon Quest Wars for 1-4 players. Konami brings racing to WiiWare with DRiiFT Mania, while Taito gets oldschool with ARKANOID Plus! And Virtual Console gets one lone release, and a familiar one at that. Howling at the moon and wising fwom theiw gwave is Altered Beast. Of course, we've seen this game on VC before, but that was the Genesis version. This one is instead the original arcade game, and in my opinion from playing it on Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for the Genesis, the superior version. For one thing, it lets you continue. Find out more information on each game after the cut. Read More


Nintendo Reveals First- and Third-Party Holiday Lineup

Nintendo has released the planned publishing schedule as it stands for the Wii and Nintendo DS/DSi, from both themselves and their third-parties. A lot of definite dates are not set in, instead referenced as "Fall," "Holiday," or "November," for example, but nonetheless serves to give us an idea of what the coming months will bring. "This extensive lineup will keep players busy throughout the fall and into 2010," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Shoppers know that Nintendo offers fun for everyone in the household." Nintendo also mentions the upcoming black Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and MotionPlus as being available "this holiday season," though they don't get any more specific than that. Hit the jump for the full press release and list of games that will become available. Read More

Paddle-less Arkanoid DS and Space Invaders Extreme US-bound

Talking out of turn? That's a paddlin'. Chewing gum? That's a paddlin'. Bringing Arkanoid DS and Space Invaders Extreme to North America without its special control peripheral? No paddlin' here, though there probably should be. Today, Taito revealed that their classic arcade games, remade for the DS, are indeed coming to America on June 17th. However, they also revealed that the two games will be making the trip alone, without their much talked about added paddle controller. In the case of Space Invaders Extreme, which along with Arkanoid features modernized graphics, the playing field may now be leveled a bit more with its PSP contemporary as a result. Of course, for the truly desperate, there's always the option of importing the paddle itself for around twenty bucks. But it's probably best not to hold out hope that it'll come here on its own. After all, that'd be a long way to paddle. Read More
